2:45 p.m. Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Georgia fans who thought the storm had blown over for Da’Rick Rogers when Tennessee’s Lane Kiffin and Ed Orgeron blew out of Knoxville are going to have to think again. The Vols, under the direction of new coach Derek Dooley, were back in Calhoun Monday night recruiting both Rogers, a longtime Georgia commitment and the No. 1 player in the AJC’s Top 50, and his quarterback/best friend Nash Nance. Once again, the record-setting duo has agreed to take an official visit to Tennessee. The date was arranged after UT offensive coordinator Jim Chaney, one of the lone holdovers from Kiffin’s staff, visited with the two players in the Nance home Monday night.

LSU offers Northview junior DL McCoy

7:32 p.m. Monday, October 27, 2008

Northview junior defensive tackle Denzel McCoy received a scholarship offer from LSU on Wednesday. “I found out last night,” the 6-foot-4, 270-pound McCoy said early today. “They called my dad Wednesday morning and he told me after school. “I was a little surprised that they offered, but I’m glad they did.” McCoy, who already has offers from programs such as Alabama, Duke, Georgia Tech, Memphis, North Carolina, N.C. State, Oregon, Penn State, Stanford, Vanderbilt and West Virginia, admitted to being interested in LSU because of former Northview teammate Cordian Hagans, a freshman defensive lineman for the Tigers. “I talked to Cordian about the offer last night,” McCoy said. “He’s saying ‘just take your time, but when you make a decision make the right one.’ “But it would be fun to have that high school repeat and play with him again.” McCoy, who has trips planned to Alabama and Vanderbilt, is scheduled to attend Clemson’s home game against Georgia Tech on Saturday. He’s trying to work a visit to LSU into his schedule

Sprayberry tailback David Carter has received plenty of interest from a variety of SEC schools. Right now, that’s all it is. Carter is waiting on his first scholarship offer, but there is little doubt one should come soon. Carter rushed for 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons for the Yellow Jackets. He looks forward to the chance to prove himself on another stage. “I think I’ve got the vision and size you need to be a good running back in college,” Carter said. “I just need someone to give me that chance. I think it will come.” Carter just returned from a visit to Furman and liked what it had to offer. Vanderbilt has been in regular contact with Carter, and he visited South Carolina during the Gamecocks’ spring game. Air Force, Miami (Ohio), Coastal Carolina and Western Carolina have all been in contact with the Sprayberry senior

Southerland will visit Oct. 4 when the Commodores play Auburn and again on Nov. 22 for the Tennessee game. Southerland, who is on the AJC’s The Georgia 150 list, has been getting interest from the University of Georgia as well, although the 6-2, 230-pound linebacker admitted the Bullodgs weren’t offering a scholarship. “I’m pretty much set on Vanderbilt,” Southerland said. “I haven’t been up [to Vanderbilt] lately. [The last time was] the second week in July, a week after I committed.”
